|Taxon Notes:||The Portunidae previously included all swimmer crabs in several subfamilies, some of which are now recognised as distinct families. This code replaces previous (interim) CAAB code 00 702900 (FISHLIST 702900). This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to this level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available.|
